Event 8: Derrick Simon Eliminated in 5th ($71,768)

$560 Buy-In Deep Stack No Limit Hold’em (Re-Entry)
Level 37: 250k/500k/50k ante

Derrick Simon’s fun run in Event 8 came to a close with an unlucky river.

Stephen Jones opened for 1,200,000 and Simon moved all-in over the top with JhJc. Jones asked for a count after it folded back to him, then called with AsQs. Simon was racing for his tournament stake and his crowd liked the 7c6c6s flop. The rail yelled for the dealer to keep the board low and she obliged with the 6h river before Jones was even a little jolted when the river popped Qd.

Nothing is boring when Simon is in a game but most are now gone with him in 5th place for $71,768.
